Programs: In September of 2004, the Kansas Food Bank began the Food 4 Kids backpack program. Food 4 Kids is a national program of America's Second Harvest now in place and working in a number of A2H affiliate food banks across America. This project is designed to fill in the weekend gap that now exists in feeding programs that have been designed to serve children at the highest risk of chronic undernourishment. At the close of school year 2005/2006, the Food Bank was in 73 schools throughout our service area sending over 1,276 food packets home with chronically hungry children each Friday. In only the first month of the 2006/2007 school year, the Food Bank was already in 69 schools with 16 schools pending, and handing out 1,020 packs of food. We expected the amount of chronically hungry children to double by the end of the 2006/2007 school year. By the end of the school year, the program served 2,730 students in 153 schools in 46 districts. As of March, 2008, KFB serves 3,549 children in 202 schools in 52 school districts.These low-income, food insecure children rely on school breakfasts and lunches throughout the five weekdays, but have no such support on Saturday and Sunday. On these two days, most have barely enough to eat and some must go without food altogether. The Food 4 Kids program provides kid-friendly food such as cereal, shelf-stable milk, healthy snacks and single-serve fruit cups and soup. These are put into backpacks and sent home with needful children every Friday during the school year.

The Kansas Food Bank has become the heart and soul of the war against hunger in Kansas. KFB distributed over 4.9 million pounds of food through our network of hunger-relief agencies throughout our 73,000 square mile service area. These agencies are church pantries, community pantries, on-site feeding programs, spouse abuse centers, drug and alcohol rehabilitation centers and children''s homes. KFB works with other America''s Second Harvest agencies to share large quantities of food that any one food bank could not distribute alone. KFB is also the major source of food for disaster relief, supplying food to both the Salvation Army and America Red Cross.
